Florida has jumped on the Cain Train, and why not.
Cain is everything Obama isn’t, including being accomplished, genuine, thoughtful, and a real leader.
I jumped on the Cain Train a long time ago. I also noted in February, that Republican candidate for president, Herman Cain, might just possibly be Barack Obama’s worst nightmare.
The MSM and the cable networks know how strong Cain is as well. One can tell that by the lack of genuine coverage that he receives. With the exception of Fox News, most coverage has been tepid at best.
One of the best lines during the debates at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley two weeks ago came after Cain explained his “9-9-9″ economic plan.
He quipped when discussing taxes and the economic mess Team Obama have put us in, “If 10 percent is good enough for God, then 9 percent is good enough for government!”.
This was a great line, but few political talkers and unabashed supporters of pResident Obama on the networks reported it. It didn’t really matter because it was all over the political blogs on the Internet.
All of which brings us back to the latest Florida straw poll. Here’s a full breakdown of the results:
Herman Cain: 37.11%
Rick Perry: 15.43%
Mitt Romney: 14.00%
Rick Santorum: 10.88%
Ron Paul: 10.39%
Newt Gingrich: 8.43%
Jon Huntsman: 2.26%
Michele Bachmann: 1.51% (this one’s a surprise)
I wonder if this means CNN, the ever unctuous Chris Matthews, and Morning Joe will be reporting that Herman Cain is now a first tier candidate for the GOP nomination of POTUS? Hmm, I wonder?
One thing I’m betting, we are going to see some last minute changes on the Sunday news shows.
